06/08 Ryan’s “Reasonable” Friday Evening Forecast
Today was another great day with plenty of sun and reasonable humidity, but more uncomfortable conditions are moving in. Dew-points have been in the upper 60s for the last few days, but are steadily climbing. Summertime patterns return through the weekend with a stronger sea-breeze and more afternoon thunderstorms. These chances start small, 20% for Saturday and Sunday, but double as we head into the first half of next week. Still, there are no fronts moving through so all of these showers and storms will be daytime heating induced. Expect these conditions to continue until Wednesday, but we’ll see more sun and drier weather as the week winds down. This is where the forecast gets a little more uncertain. At least one model is forecasting a tropical system developing in the Western Caribbean by the middle of next week. If it forms, it could be moving into the Northern Gulf by the end of the week. We’ll continue to monitor all tropical development.
